We are proud to announce that we have moved into west Michigan to serve west Michigan veterans and the west Michigan senior community.

Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz & Associates, P.C. now has an office in beautiful downtown Zeeland, Michigan located at 109 Main Street, Suite 6, Zeeland, Michigan. Serving Kent County and Ottawa County, veterans, seniors and others can now get the help that they need with:

  • Elder Law – Veteran’s benefit planning, Medicaid and nursing home planning, long-term care planning, estate planning, and, probate matters.
  • Family Law – Divorce, and, child custody matters.
  • Long Term Disability – Assistance with ERISA matters, and, long term disability claims.
  • Personal Injury – Auto accidents, no-fault claims, slip and fall, and other personal injury claims.
  • Business Planning – Creating a corporate entity and business consulting.

Dedicated to serving the west Michigan community; Ottawa County and Kent County, Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz and Associates, P.C. will offer the same service our clients in Macomb County, Oakland County, Wayne County, and, Metro-Detroit have enjoyed.

Often times we have clients that need assistance in Florida. The great snowbird migration of the upper midwest to sunshine states can affect clients living in multiple states. In Michigan it seems that most seniors and retires enjoy spending winters in Florida.

Although we do not practice law in Florida, we frequently refer to experts in different ares of Florida law. One such expert that I frequently defer to in the areas of Elder Law, Medicaid Planning, Veteran’s Benefits, Probate, and, Estate Planning is Mark Lewis.

Mark is a highly skilled attorney working in the Tampa / St. Pete’s area. He can be reached at:

In addition to assisting seniors with long term care and personal injury victims, our firm also is a leader in the practice of family law in Macomb County.

Often times, family law issues evolve from long term care planning issues. Our goal, as a firm, is to offer full legal services to the community as a whole.

We are pleased to announce the arrival of Kevin J. Peters. Kevin comes to Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz and Associates, with over fifteen years experience as a litigator. Kevin focuses his practice in family law, medical malpractice, personal injury and litigation. Kevin will serve our firm and our community as our divorce and child custody specialist.

Our firm is pleased to announce that we have moved to our new offices located at 44444 Mound Road, Suite 100, Sterling Heights, Michigan 48314. Located south of M-59/Hall Road on the east side of Mound Road, our new building is accommodating to seniors and provides easy access to M-59 and nearby freeways.

As most readers of this blog know, our firm proudly serves the metro Detroit area including Macomb, Wayne, Oakland, St. Clair, and Washtenaw counties. We have clients across the state of Michigan and have several clients with children across the country. In order to better serve clients across the State of Michigan, we have established a referral network called The Center for Veteran’s Planning. The goal of the Center for Veteran’s Planning is to establish a network of affiliated offices across the state to assist veteran’s with legal issues and benefit planning.

Although we have established ourselves as a general practice firm with expertise in Elder Law and VA benefit planning, the attorneys at our firm each specialize in their own areas of practice. If you have a legal need or question remember… Call first…Act Second!
